In mid-March of this year, Moto Honda da Amazonia Ltda. (HDA), a Honda subsidiary in Brazil will begin producing the world's first flexible fuel motorcycle -- the CG150 TITAN MIX.
Autoblog Green reports, "The ethanol-capable bike features a 150cc single cylinder engine that's equipped with Honda's proprietary Mix Fuel Injection System which is capable of detecting the presence and concentration of ethanol and gasoline and tailoring its operation based on what it's been fed."
Wait, what?! Is it just me, or do you find it surprising that with as much as we've heard in recent years about flex-fuel cars and trucks that this is the first two-wheeler to employ this technology?
But make no mistake; Brazil isn't just jumping on the ethanol bandwagon. In fact, out of all of the new vehicles sold in Brazil, about 90 percent of them are flex-fuel capable.
